Here's my vacation photos gang! No, really... I made it a point for my wife and I to stop off and photograph at least one old cemetery on our trip to New Hampshire this past weekend.

The first cemetery we stopped at was on Route 113 in Chocorua New Hampshire. It was an old cemetery from the 1800s set into a hillside. The cemetery had no fence, gate or other bordering structures of any kind. The grounds also had no marker detailing the proper name for the burying ground itself, save for a fairly recent marker out by the street simply inscribed with the town's name on it.

This graveyard was pretty large, occupying about an acre or so of the hillside it was set into.

The second graveyard we stopped at was in front of a small church on Route 25 in Moultonborough, New Hampshire. This graveyard also bore no proper name, but it did have an iron fence with a arched entryway on one side. The other three sides of the cemetery were bordered with an old white picket fence. Nothing much to see here. This cemetery was probably about 50 feet long and 25 feet deep.

I just thought I'd share these with the group. You can never have too many reference photos for tombstones nor can you have too many different design ideas. Enjoy!

Thanks Zombie for all the reference pics. The slightly fancy stones are giving me all sorts of ideas for some new stones. Love the close up pics with moss.

Very nice pictures; lots of inspiration there.

I'm glad that somebody fixed Betsey's stone. :)

I just took some photos of the cemetery in the center of my town. Some weird stuff in there. There's the remnants of a really fancy old fence, an area fenced off by chains, some old mausoleums set right into the ground and some really nice weathered tombstones. Have a look:
